SPEAR's response to COVID-19

SPEAR is still offering our services to those who are currently experiencing or have recently experienced homelessness. However, we have had to make some changes to adapt to the current situation:

Attending the Hub (our drop-in centre on Heath Road) is by appointment only.

We are currently not recruiting new volunteers, but will continue to work with our current volunteers.

We currently have to reduce the type of physical donations we can accept. We are not able to accept clothing, bedding or furniture. However, we are in need of food and toiletries.

Many events and activities that helped fund our services have been cancelled. If you could help us keep these services going, please donate to our COVID Emergency Appeal.
